V. i. 108 117 The Lightweight Satire A Midsummer Night s Dream is often viewed as a ligh Though she be but little, she is fierceA Midsummer Night s Dream is Shakespeare s funniest comedy, honestly When a couple tries to run away, they get followed by a man in love with them, and then by a woman in love with him And a fairy fucking around makes it all go to shit As you do This play is probably funniest because of its excellent set of characters, including Hermia is 4 9 and could kick your ass runs a feminist blog Lysander is so beautiful and so, so useless Helena was told she was too tall for a pair of heels once by a shoestore clerk and stared him directly in the face while purchasing them your one friend who s pining over some shitty man Demetrius the shitty man okay, actually, he s doing his best, he s just like, really bad at everythingadaptation thoughts Okay, first of all, may I just I really liked it when Lysander called Hermia an acorn. mini review, as I do for classics this was my first time reading Shakespeare on my own, and I kind ofsaw that as a negative I like discussing Shakespeare in a classroom setting, and being motivated to mark up the text and otherwise process it fully I felt like I missed out on stuff here. also, this play felt so short maybe it s my edition s fault, for being 111 pages maybe it s how abrupt the ending was which is very or how flat the characters were, or how there were a sh t ton of them long story short, it s not my fave Shakespeare. all that being said, this was very readable and funny at some points I think this is one of the plays you really need to see performed, rather than read it. bottom line I recommend watching this I sure want to but I don t think I recommend reading it.
